Dry pasta recommendations?

I like to start a sub-thread, and I think it will be both a light-heart continuation of the current conversation and a practical one.

I used to buy a lot of dried pasta, but I have not done so for the last 3 years. I often bought the ones on sale. I do remember buying Barilla because they are not too expensive and they are good.

So, for those of you who talk about avoiding Barilla pasta, do you have any good recommendation for dry pasta?

Fresh pasta does not count, and home made pasta definitely does not count.

    1. Culinary Circle, if you can find it. I buy it at Shoppers Food Warehouse in the DC area. It's bronze cut and about $1.50 a pound. They have harder to find shapes like bucatini, pennoni regate, cavatappi. Their linguine holds clam sauce beautifully. Come to think of it, I haven't made a trip to Shoppers in a while and need to for this.

              I love Delverde. Not too expensive either.
